Central Lakes College English instructor Julie Austin recently had a course recognized as QM certified by the Minnesota Online Quality Initiative.
The course, Composition I, joins two other of Austin’s English courses to be QM certified.
Austin’s course is among hundreds of higher education courses nationwide to be given the honor by the Minnesota Online Quality Initiative, an organization that uses peer review of online or blended courses for Quality Matters (QM) recognition.
Each of the recognized courses has been formally reviewed in a rigorous peer review process and meets Quality Matters standards. Each faculty member has received a certificate and a QM seal to display on their course materials.
There have been 362 Quality Matters recognized courses from MnSCU institutions and the University of Minnesota from 2010–2015.
CLC has had 11 in that time.
